PM Mitsotakis with older inoculated people: Help us spread the message vaccination is safe

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis met 7 inoculated citizens aged 64-93 at Maximos Mansion on Thursday, and urged them to spread the message of the importance of vaccination in their age groups.

"The risk of staying unvaccinated is very high," the premier said, pointing out that of the 200 patients placed on ventilators in March only three citizens had been fully vaccinated. It is therefore crucial that older citizens prompt their peers to make that decision soon; vaccines are plenty for the country's higher age-groups and more are coming as of this month, he stressed.

The feeling of security after one has been vaccinated affects all aspects of life positively, said Mitsotakis. Most of his visitors at the prime ministerial mansion testified to the fact that simple things, like visiting one's grandchildren or going for a walk are now performed under the same rules but with peace of mind.

"I mostly wish that your voice is heard, so we may convince our older fellow citizens who have not decided to become vaccinated, to do so now," Mitsotakis said. Whoever does not understand the importance of vaccination, he said, must see the daily fight of patients, doctors and nurses in ICUs, "because once you get admitted to an ICU, there is a great chance you will never exit," despite the efforts of doctors and care provided.
